Welcome to the new Polka Dot Creations blog!

A new month, a new beginning!

Throughout the month of May, I did a lot of blog-reading, and it helped me figure out what features I like in a blog. I decided I wanted more flexibility than what I had before – I wanted to be able to format the sidebar however I wanted, add as many links as I wanted to, my etsy mini, my flickr badge, and whatever else my little heart desired. I also was unhappy with the way comments were handled.

So, being the control freak that I am, and wanting a free solution, I headed over to wordpress.org and installed wordpress on my server. Now the blog is integrated into my site, and I’ve designed some graphics to make it fit seamlessly with the rest of the store. I’m really impressed with how easy it was. I still have some picky things to play around with in the side bar, more links to add, etc, but it’s good enough to unleash on the public at this point!

I have to run – it’s son #2’s “Special Night” tonight and we have games to play and munchies to munch! I’ll be back some time this weekend to post the Bestseller List for May!

  5. […] peony in a plastic cup on my kitchen window sill illustrated my very first post on this blog.  Late May / early June was a really exciting time for me last year – I was finally teaching […]
